Help with your application
We will try to help you in any way we can to make your application successful. The following checklist should help you get started.
How do you apply?
Normally, you apply online via our course pages.
For some of our courses, you will need to register at a local teaching centre (e.g. some CertHE qualifications or the International Foundation Programme). Your local teaching centre will help you to apply for the course.
Do you meet the requirements?
Our course pages outline what you need for entry. If you do not automatically satisfy our entry criteria then you will be considered by our Admissions Panel.
About the online form and fees
Most of our courses have an application fee. We cannot process your application until we have received this. This fee is not refunded even if your application is unsuccessful. You can pay this online, offline, or in person.
Applying for Recognition of Prior Learning?
If you are applying for Recognition of Prior Learning, you must complete the relevant section on the application form. There may also be a fee per application, depending on the type of accreditation you are applying for.
What is Recognition of Prior Learning?
Submitting documents / evidence
When you apply, you can upload supporting documents that prove your qualifications and date of birth. We will need verified copies of this evidence. You can submit your application without your supporting documents. We will then contact you requesting your outstanding evidence.
What should I provide as evidence?
Previously applied / registered with us?
Have you previously applied / previously registered for this or another programme? If so please contact us before submitting your application as it is likely you do not need to submit a new application.
You can meet our admissions team by attending an event in your home country. Alternatively, you can see a list of frequently asked questions and submit your own to our Student Advice Centre.
Applying from Hong Kong
If you are applying from Hong Kong, you have the option to visit our admissions office at the Hong Kong School of Professional and Continuing Education (HKU SPACE).
You will need to take your application form, your original documents and two photocopies. Your application will be processed and your documents returned to you.
(Even if you are not planning to study at HKU SPACE, it can still verify your documents or help you to apply to the University of London for a fee.)
If you plan to study at a teaching institution, contact it for advice on the application procedure.
